Professor Emerita Sue Fawn Chung talks about the Qingming Festival and respecting the ancestors from the distant past to the present. From South China to the American West the tradition of respecting the ancestors was carried out during the Qingming (Bright and Clear) Festival during which time the ancestors are remembered, the tomb is swept, and food offerings are made. The fourth century B.C. philosopher, Confucius, stressed the importance of performing the proper rituals. The preparation of the body for burial, the funeral procession, the burial itself, and the banquet were all part of the prescribed activities.
